The Frontiers of Immigration International Conference at UC Davis


Immigration has a deep impact on the economy, society and culture in the US and in the World. This conference brings together top world scholars who have analyzed the economic, demographic, political and social consequences of migrations. Their research will provide the facts and in-depth understanding that is much needed to inform immigration policies. A group of policy advisors and experts will then provide their perspective on the present and future of immigration reforms in the US.
